|Sadayatana 164: The Moon Garden - John Tocher|
...And surely I stopped very sudden; for she gripped me in that moment, and her hand shook as she held me; but when I would ask her what ailed, she bid me, very breathless, to say on, to say on. And, with a half understanding, I told her that I had but meant to speak of the Moon Garden, that was an olden and happy fancy of mine. - William Hope Hodgson, The Night Land (1912) startartisttitle00:00PtarkhCollapse01:39Head JointShapes (Inspired By The Music Of Klaus Schulze)21:25_Algol_HD 4030730:40...

|Sadayatana 092: Night Of A Thousand Crimes - John Tocher|
When I got home I mixed a stiff one and stood by the open window in the living room and sipped it and listened to the groundswell of traffic on Laurel Canyon Boulevard and looked at the glare of the big angry city hanging over the shoulder of the hills through which the boulevard had been cut. Far off the banshee wail of police or fire sirens rose and fell, never for very long completely silent. Twenty four hours a day somebody is running, somebody else is trying to catch him...

|Sadayatana 130: Flow Away - John Tocher|
Year after year students tumble along like the waters of a river. They flow away, and only the teacher is left behind, like some deeply buried rock at the bottom of the current. - Abe Kobo, The Woman in the Dunes (1962) startartisttitle00:00Ian D HawgoodEarmuffs Blocking Out The City Noise03:50Red FogBeyond The Halogen Halls14:07Sun HammerOffice Music (for Justin Snow)23:04Spectra AtmosphericTrail Of Drone32:27Duncan GoddardThey're Not Loops42:37Spectra AtmosphericGlow From The Abyss57:08IOK-1D...

|Sadayatana 170: Within God - John Tocher|
The Beduin could not look for God within him: he was too sure that he was within God. He could not conceive anything which was or was not God, Who alone was great; yet there was a homeliness, an everyday-ness of this climatic Arab God, who was their eating and their fighting and their lusting, the commonest of their thoughts, their familiar resource and companion, in a way impossible to those whose God is so wistfully veiled from them by despair of their carnal unworthiness of Him and by the dec...

|Sadayatana 147: Unity of Everything - John Tocher|
Objective knowledge, the idea of unity included, belongs to objective consciousness. The forms which express this knowledge when perceived by subjective consciousness are inevitably distorted and, instead of truth, they create more and more delusions. With objective consciousness it is possible to see and feel the unity of everything. But for subjective consciousness the world is split up into millions of separate and unconnected phenomena...

|Sadayatana 125: Out of Blood - John Tocher|
It did not seem possible that Wendy Wright had been born out of blood and internal organs like other people. In proximity to her he felt himself to be a squat, oily, sweating, uneducated nurt whose stomach rattled and whose breath wheezed. Near her he became aware of the physical mechanisms which kept him alive; within him machinery, pipes and valves and gas-compressors and fan belts had to chug away at a losing task, a labor ultimately doomed...

|Sadayatana 088: Bizarre And Flawed - John Tocher|
I used to think I was the strangest person in the world but then I thought there are so many people in the world, there must be someone just like me who feels bizarre and flawed in the same ways I do. I would imagine her, and imagine that she must be out there thinking of me too. Well, I hope that if you are out there and read this and know that, yes, it's true I'm here, and I'm just as strange as you...
